The Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 wiki last edited by DeF on 03/25/14 07:45AM View full history

Overview

Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 is virtually identical to Super Mario World, released originally on the SNES in 1991. Some of the minor differences in this Game Boy Advance version are the ability to slightly move the camera and the additional noises that Mario and Luigi make (some lifted from Super Mario 64.) Yoshi coins are also included in every level, whereas they appear infrequently in Super Mario World. The GBA release makes it possible to save at any checkpoint or level completion. The multiplayer is a remake of the original Mario Bros. and supports single-pak play. Brilliantly, other titles in the Super Mario Advance series are able to be used in multi-pak play. Some design concessions are made due to the limitations of the hardware in comparison to the SNES. The visuals are downgraded slightly to preserve high framerate and memory on the cartridge, and the button layout is altered to fit the GBA's simpler controls.
